It's up to you: It is safe to have sex until the last few weeks of your pregnancy, if you do not have pre-term contractions, infections, or other problems. Let how you feel guide your actions. Pay attention to your body and your mind, and see a doctor if you are having bleeding from your vagina, lots of cramping, or if you find yourself feeling down or unable to enjoy any of the things you did pre-pregnancy.

Yes though unlikely: If a man ejaculates next to the opening of the woman's vagina or just inside the outer lips of the vagina there is a small chance the sperm could swim up the vagina, into the uterus and go on to fertilize an egg.
